Sometimes you just need a little inspiration, something new or old. I found this darling metal canister set (at least that’s what I think it is) at our local antique mall. It’s almost embarrassing how often I visit that store.

I saw this one day and fell in love with it. As usual, I left it there to think about it for a few days. I just couldn’t seem to forget about it. So here it is, a perfect home for our tea and hot cocoa.

I love it so. The aqua is the perfect shade, and the copper so shiny.

This was part of my Christmas gift from my parents. It couldn’t be more perfect. The best part, they gave my sister Mary a matching one. Now we will be recipe box twins.

These old metal beauties inspired us to paint our kitchen cupboards. You heard right. Apparently it doesn’t take much to motivate me. (ha.) We were very spontaneous the day we painted. Or should I say day and night? It’s still a little foggy. 🙂 More on that later.


  1. Oh boy, it’s probably a good thing I don’t have a house to fill up. 🙂 I like it a lot! Can’t wait to see your newly painted cupboards. Turah and I really need to stop by your house when we visit Grandma!



  2. Hmmm… I must have missed this post. But I noticed this canister set right away in your painting cupboards post! And I love it! So much! 🙂
